Data for the Doubtful Part 7: The Children of Toasted Cheese
A studio version of a live radiophonic work produced by Vernon & Burns, commissioned by Tramway, Glasgow and originally performed in October 2012. The piece explores the internal space of the subconscious and the logic of dreams, featuring readings from Barry Burns dream diary and interviews with other people about their dreams and sleeping habits.
I have always been amazed at the way an ordinary observer lends so much more credence and attaches so much more importance to waking events than to those occurring in dreams... Man... is above all the plaything of his memory
